Why Is the Healthcare BPO Market Growing So Rapidly?

Rising healthcare costs are the primary reason. Countries like India and the Philippines offer labor at more affordable prices. With a rapidly growing  population over the age of 65 and not enough younger workers to care for them; prevalence of  chronic illnesses; doctor and nurse shortage; and a lack of general transparency, the American healthcare system is stretched thin. Healthcare BPO services offer a way for the system to help cope with these many factors.

What Should I Look For in a Healthcare BPO Partner?
What Should I Look For in a Healthcare BPO Partner?

Because Healthcare BPOs deal with sensitive patient information, your BPO partner must be HIPAA compliant. You should also look for a partner who is URAC (Utilization Review Accreditation Commission) and HITRUST (Health Information Trust Alliance) -certified. Additionally, SOC (System and Organization Controls) 1 and 2 compliance are good indicators of a high-quality BPO partner.

Healthcare business process outsourcing

What is Healthcare BPO?

To understand Healthcare BPO, let’s first define what BPO is.

BPO, or business process outsourcing, is delegating non-core business tasks to a third party like Unity Communications.

Healthcare BPOs are business process outsourcing tasks related to the healthcare sector.

Why Is Customer Service Important in Healthcare?

Customer service standards continue to become harder as the margins shrink in the current healthcare industry. The competition for market share becomes more challenging each year.

One crucial competitive advantage to staying ahead is superior customer service and relations. Good patient support sets you apart in a crowded market, whether your goal is to win new clients or retain existing ones.

Your healthcare business’ reputation is paramount, especially nowadays when social media is the universal source of information and online word-of-mouth directs customers to look for peer-to-peer reviews. Here at Unity Communications, we understand the risk of outsourcing healthcare.

That’s why we value keeping our healthcare clients’ brands safe. We have a reliable track record working with various healthcare practices. Our goal is to become a direct extension of your brand, patient support, and marketing department.

How Do You Improve Upon the Customer Care Experience in Healthcare?

Most consumers have identified that customer service is a critical factor to them. A report has predicted that customer experience and satisfaction will take over pricing and product as the primary brand identifiers in the coming years. Follow the best practices for healthcare customer service below:

  • Be prompt when answering questions, responding to inquiries, managing requests, and solving problems. You can use analytics to measure your average response time and work toward making it better. Healthcare customers expect support agents to be quick and efficient. 
  • Use client history, contact and billing information, and other data to predict your customer’s needs, even before they reach out to you with questions.
  • Use analytical tools to keep an eye on agents and their performance. Set key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure performance and goals for improvement. You can also use call whispering and call barging tools to intervene during heated calls and assist your agents in real-time.
  • Personalize your patient support by training call takers to use their names when talking to clients. 
  • Be open to feedback provided by your call takers. Provide them with regular training to continuously improve your call center practices and keep up with industry standards.

What Should You Look for When Hiring a Healthcare BPO Provider?

Suppose you find yourself wondering why you’re spending more time processing paperwork, on the phone with insurance companies, and dealing with business-related activities instead of focusing on the reason you got into the healthcare industry in the first place. In that case, it’s time for you to consider outsourcing.

In most healthcare practices, outsourcing is a wise decision. The benefits are reduced costs relating to staffing and training, space and infrastructure, and pressure on your internal team when hiring and onboarding employees for roles with high turnover.

Healthcare clinics and hospitals that no longer want to endure the burden of having in-house patient support can consider several outsourced solutions, such as voice and email outsourcing. Selecting the best call center partner for your business needs should be a strategic decision.

Look for the following when evaluating a potential Healthcare BPO partner:

Cloud-based Contact Center

The recent social climate has shown everyone how vital cloud-based systems can be. Many on-site call centers completely shut down when governments started mandating closures in the past year. 

Cloud-based call center solutions provide resilience during disasters. Cloud-based systems are considerably inexpensive to scale up. Deployments with these systems also happen easier since they can readily integrate with existing systems.

Operational Cost Savings

The end goal of customer service outsourcing is to free up company resources so that a business can focus on revenue drivers. To get the best bang for your buck, understand the cost savings that come with outsourced customer support and how they contribute to your bottom line. 

Start by assessing how much you’re spending on all facets of in-house customer service. Understanding exactly how much your company runs in-house customer service costs helps contextualize outsourcing as a value-added proposition. 

Then when it comes time to work with an outsourcing partner, you are on a better footing for fitting a service level agreement into your business requirements.

Healthcare BPO services free up resources you can dedicate to growing profit centers.
